Can I sue a driver that makes an improper left turn and caused a Michigan car accident?

Yes, you can sue a driver that makes an improper left turn and caused a Michigan car accident. Improper left turn accidents are a common cause of serious injury because these crashes often take place at high speed.  Under Michigan statute, an injured auto accident victim can sue the negligent driver that ran the red light and caused the car accident.  These Michigan statutes include:

  • Failing to yield the right-of-way to the vehicle of the Plaintiff approaching from the opposite direction, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.650.
  • Failing, before turning, from a direct line, to see that such movement could be made in safety, in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648.
  • Failing, before turning from a direct line, to give a signal of such intention to turn in violation of Mich. Comp. Laws Ann. §257.648.
